Dental Implants and All-on-4

Losing your teeth can be painful, uncomfortable and embarrassing, but you are not alone: Millions of people lose their teeth every year because of trauma, heredity, gum disease (periodontitis), and decay, and millions of people are turning to dental implants as a way to regain their quality of life.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace your missing teeth with new, durable teeth that look and feel like your own. You will find that restoring your smile will help to bring back your self-confidence in all of the activities you love!

Dental implants can improve your quality of life by helping you gain back a healthy, functional and beautiful smile.

Implants can replace individual or multiple missing teeth. Implants blend seamlessly with you’re your natural teeth, and you will experience the confidence that comes from having your smile complete again. Dental implants are durable and long lasting, and they allow you to eat all the foods that are required in a healthy, balanced diet.

Dental Implant Replacement Options

Overdentures
Are you frustrated with your dentures? Dental Implants can provide an immediate and long-term improvement in comfort, chewing ability, and quality of life. Dental implants can also be used to stabilize your denture, restoring your self-confidence to do all the things you love.

Loose and ill-fitting dentures can be uncomfortable and embarassing. Some patients find that they are unable to tolerate conventional dentures at all.

With conventional dentures, patients often need to use denture adhesive, which can be messy and make dentures difficult to clean. Dentures can also cover taste buds resulting in a decreased sense of taste.

The addition of dental implants may result in a denture that is less bulky and does not cover the entire roof of the mouth, like conventional dentures, thus enhancing sense of taste and preventing gagging.

Dental implants placed in the bone can be used to stabilize existing or new dentures. Implant overdentures are removable and easy to clean, but must be removed every evening for proper hygiene.

All-On-4
All-on-4 is a fixed bridge supported by just 4 implants. The bridge does not rest on the gums or cover the roof of the mouth at all, like an implant overdenture or conventional denture would. In addition, the implants and bridge can be placed the same day that teeth are taken out.

The All-on-4 fixed bridge is screwed into the dental implants and can only be removed by your dentist. It is easy to clean using a waterpik and toothbrush.

This fixed bridge is a cost-effective option for replacing all of your missing teeth for patients who are unhappy with their dentures or have teeth that cannot be saved.
